This one-day lecture will take the form of practical demonstrations moving between SketchUp and Photoshop. The primary focus will be on Photoshop and is therefore equally relevant to Vectorworks and other design software, including the digital enhancement of hand drawings. The day will include:
Benefits of using Photoshop, and the interaction between SketchUp and Photoshop, including where and how to start.
Creating a perspective framework to be rendered in Photoshop.
Using Photoshop to enhance photographic images which can then be used to enhance 3D SketchUp models, along with practical suggestions for simplifying and speeding up the 3D modelling process.
Creating basic mp3 recordings of 3D models as a communication tool between both designers and clients.
Rendering surfaces in Photoshop.
Textures, atmosphere and mood in Photoshop, and developing a style.
Digital planting - various techniques using Photoshop to create a wide range of visually satisfying planting styles and imagery. This will be the core focus of the day, with plenty of time for questions during the demonstrations.
How to create species specific digital plants and available online library resources.
Target audience: Anyone interested either in learning, or in better understanding the processes involved in digital rendering using Photoshop as the primary tool.
